Wine stored in a bottle gets better with age, whereas a message sent in a bottle is the best way to avoid exorbitant stamp prices. Empty your own glass envelopes with today’s Groupon: for $75, you get a four-hour wine seminar from a sommelier at Bar Secrets (a $210 value) in the City Line Shopping Center.
Bar Secrets enlightens bartenders with informative classes and lectures catered specifically to spirit slingers. During the four-hour seminar, an experienced sommelier discusses in-depth topics such as food and wine pairings, proper stemware presentation, and how to brew wine with only a double-A battery and a can of pears. Vino veterans-in-the-making pick up useful tips on wine terminology, as well enough info on storing, producing, and purchasing the grape-y libations to impress the stodgiest monocle-clad oenophiles. Throughout the lesson, pupils will net sips and savory whiffs of the array of wines on display, vastly broadening their base of knowledge. Seminar attendees will be presented with a frame-ready certificate at the event’s conclusion, certain to fill onlookers with a sense of wonderment.
Mixology Wine Institute
Mixology Wine Institute's oenophilic classes teach aspiring mixologists and mixonomists how to craft a diverse roster of libations while regaling students with the rich history and social function of the cocktail. The seasoned staff—which includes a resident sommelier and beer experts—dispense thoughtful nuggets of drink-dispensing wisdom, such as ways to add flair to a bartending routine, various wine-and-food pairings, and how to win a cocktail-sword duel. Each session takes place in the institute's well-equipped classroom, which simulates a real bar setting with working soda guns, sinks, and a full catalog of liquors. Pupils leave classes with the knowledge necessary to help bargoers make informed drink decisions.
